Learn More

The Chief Resilience Officer is responsible for engaging stakeholders from the region’s communities, local governments, civic sector, business sector, and other institutions; consult with an international platform of resilience experts; and collaborate with a global coalition of Chief Resilience Officers in cities around the world.

Pittsburgh’s Chief Resilience Officer (CRO) is a dynamic, engaging, game-changing individual in an innovative top-level advisory position in city government who reports directly to our Mayor, and guides the development of the city resilience strategy. 

On June 5, 2015  at the Resilient Pittsburgh Agenda-Setting Workshop, Mayor William Peduto named city sustainability manager Grant Ervin to the position of Chief Resilience Officer .
